this is a very nice presentation.
my comments would be:
refactor the slide named "Goal of the Semantic Web". Your statement is
true, but its implications
are not mentionned, and may not be infered by the audience without
some additionnal information.

i have no clue however how to resume the goal of the semWeb in one/two slides.
but because this slide has to catch the audience's attention, you
should really work on it.

second comment:
i would cut the "Triples" slides into two.
It is extremely important that the audience undestand the "S" "P" and
"O" terms. so i would dedicate
one slide to present S P O as the elements of a triple, and move the
examples into another slide.
i would also add an example slide presenting how a set of triples
become a triple graph (something similar to the slide "This Web is

third comment:
mention "deferencable URIs" in your "Cool URIs" slide.

fourth comment:
I will reuse these slides, they rock!
